Latest 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Renderings Seem Almost Real

It’s been a while since we last saw a Corvette C8 rendering so we thought we’d fix that by showing you a new batch of CGIs of the most anticipated Corvette ever.

They are all authored by an old acquaintance of ours, Chazcron aka Charles Cronley from the MidEngineCorvetteForum. He’s definitely one of the most prolific artists when it comes to Corvette C8 renderings and his latest work makes us count the days until July 18. That’s the day Chevrolet will finally present the mid-engine Corvette in Orange County, California.

Probably the most intriguing of these images is the one showing a blue 2020 Corvette on display at Kerbeck Corvette, the world’s largest Corvette dealer which has already started taking deposits for the C8. The image shows some C7 Corvettes in the background, making it pretty obvious how different the new car will be from the old front-engined model.

We’ll let you decide which of the renderings is your favorite one but we have to say the red one with the top down is absolutely jaw-dropping. We’ve also added a video from Chazcron showing how he envisions the Convertible model’s roof will operate.

While he pictures the roof as automatic, there’s no official indication that will actually be the case. Since the car has a mid-ship configuration, finding enough room between the engine and the cockpit to store the automatically retractable roof would be quite a challenge.

Yes, we’re aware that we’re in the land of speculation with these renderings but we feel they provide a pretty good indication of what the actual car will look like. The worst that can happen is for the real 2020 Corvette to look better than these renderings but we guess that’s a “risk” we’re all willing to take.

    They’ve ruined the Corvette with that ugly foreshortened front end. Everything aft of the windshield looks fine.

  • LJ

    It’s an attractive car that should have been given a different nameplate.

  • Dave Burgess

    can they jus stop with the fake corvette pics already!

    • chazcron

      No.

  • Seats & a steering wheel

    These renderings are so good that the days of surprise and delight are gone when a new model comes out. Bit sad really.

  • SteersUright

    Dramatic but fairly ugly. The proportions do lend some excitement to the look but, the details are just so bad. It looks like a bad knock-off of the NSX. What a shame. Why couldn’t a brand new, blank slate development mimic the looks of some of the best of the mid-engine cars i.e. LaFerrari, 488 Pista, Huracán, Aventador, Ford GT, Aston Vanquish/Valkyrie, Porsche 918, etc.? Instead, us Corvette fans get this kit-car looking, sad excuse for the first (and maybe final) mid-engine Corvette??
    Lets hope Corvette team has made or will make some serious design updates ASAP. This has the bones of an epic machine. Who on earth doesnt get thrilled by the idea of a mid-engine, V8, American sports car??

    This is pretty much it I think. Obviously it will look much better in the flesh than in renderings. Looks pretty good and if the starting price is around 70k it’s a killer! Nothing comparable to it on the market, other than Cayman which will be decimated. Corvette started as a sports car for the masses, now it’s a supercar for the masses.

    From studying the spy photos I think there is a design element that all the renders are missing. I think (THINK) that the crease that goes over the top of the fender continues down the door in a straight line from the A-pillar to the top of the side vent opening. I’ve caught a glimpse in a couple of different photos of the more recent, less camouflaged mules.

    Tapping my fingers waiting for someone to render it with a LibertyWalk body kit. I can’t draw so ?

      LOL!!
